WÄLDSEEMÜLLER, Martin.
1535 - Lyons: M. & G. Treschel, 1535. Woodcut, coloured, printed area 335 x 420mm. Some restoration at centrefold. The Fries reduction of Wäldseemüller's map of the Caucasus, with the title on verso. Originally intended not for a Ptolemy edition but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the reduced woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of the 'Geography'. On verso is a text surrounded by woodcut columnar decorations and another woodcut with numerous scenes including a woman sitting beside a tree with hanging body parts.

WÄLDSEEMÜLLER, Martin.
Lyons: Melchor & Gaspar Treschel, 1535. Woodcut, printed area 340 x 450mm. A very fine example of the Fries issue of Wäldseemüller's 'modern' map of Scandinavia, in turn a faithful copy of the first map of the region printed in Ulm in 1482. Norway, Sweden and Iceland are virtually unrecognisable; at the top, east of Iceland, is Greenland, connected by a narrow isthmus to the rest of Scandinavia. The rest of Europe follows the Ptolemaic format. The title is on a bandarole above the map; the text on the right edge of the map describes the lenghening hours of daylight as a traveller moves north. Originally intended not for a Ptolemy edition but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of the 'Geography'. The editior of this edition was Michael Servetus, who was burned at the stake for heresy in 1553; John Calvin ordered that copies of the 'Geography' should be burnt with him.

November 1532; jedoch wurde die Schrift erst drei Jahre später in Druck gegeben. - Der Biberacher Dominikaner Vehe (um 1490-1539) wurde 1513 in Heidelberg zum Doktor der Theologie promoviert; zwei Jahre später wurde er Prior des dortigen Dominikanerkonvents. 1530 zum Propst des Stiftes "Ad velum aureum" zu Halle ernannt, verteidigte er als Inquisitor die katholische Lehre in mehreren wichtigen Streitschriften, die Ignatius Smith als "the best apologetical treatises that appeared in Germany during the sixteenth century" bezeichnet (in: Catholic Encylopaedia, Bd. 15, s. v.) und zu denen die vorliegende Schrift gezählt wird.

About the malleus maleficarum: The Malleus Maleficarum[2] (commonly rendered into English as "Hammer of [the] Witches";[3] Der Hexenhammer in German) is a treatise on the prosecution of witches, written in 1486 by Heinrich Kramer, a German Catholic clergyman. The book was first published in Speyer, Germany, in 1487.[4] James Sprenger is also often attributed as an author, but some scholars now believe that he became associated with the Malleus Maleficarum largely as a result of Kramer's wish to lend his book as much official authority as possible.[5] The main purpose of the Malleus was to systematically refute arguments claiming that witchcraft does not exist, to discredit those who expressed skepticism about its reality, to claim that those who practised witchcraft were more often women than men, and to educatemagistrates on the procedures that could find the … [Click Below for Full Description]

SADOLETO (Jacopo)
Argentinae [Strasbourg] Apud Ioannem Albertum, Anno M. D. XXXV. Mense Martio. 1535. Small 8vo, 147 x 90 mms., unpaginated, pp. [124], collating A-H8, with the recto of the last leaf bearing the engraved colophon, contemporary vellum (slightly soiled), with the autograph in ink "Walter Shelley/ M. Temple" on the front paste-down end-paper, and in pencil on the recto of the front free end-paper, "Cosmo Gordon/ [?Inschia] 1951." Sadoleto (1477 - 1547), the Italian humanist and churchman, and in 1533 published his De pueris recte instituendis, considering the education of boys in his capacity as Bishop of Carpentras, to be his most important duty. Sadoleto was also friendly with Erasmus (1466 - 1536) and corresponded with him on numerous matters, including education; his Imago pueri Jesu posita in ludo literario is included in the present volume. "Sadoleto, a cultured yet devout believer, strikes a note of deep seriousness, symptoms of the temper of the counter-reformation to which he so ardently devoted himself. Then he writes as one with a definite end in view : he has in mind the youth of the higher professional class his own and of landed families of modest estate. He knows what is wanted from experience of society in France as well as in Italy. Again, no other humanist writer upon education has as thoroughly entered into the true spirit of Plato. The end which Sadoleto puts forth is that of a liberal training not concerned with any of the possible technical superstructures which taste or need may suggest.

BARTHOLOMEUS ANGLICUS / TREVISA, John, tr
London: Thomas Berthelet, 1535. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Small folio [29 cm x 19.5 cm], (8), CCCLXXXVI (ie 388) ff. Bound in blindstamped contemporary English calf, sympathetically rebacked with original black and gilt title label laid on. Early MS title on fore-edge. Woodcut device on verso of last leaf and woodcut initials throughout. Scattered worming, touching one or two letters in the first 50 leaves, otherwise very clean and fresh. An unusually fine copy. Rare second and earliest acquirable English edition (first, 1495) of Bartholomaeus Anglicus' famed encyclopedia, the most comprehensive synthesis of information about the known world well into the 16th century, rarely found complete. Anglicus' work has long been recognised as a fundamental text in mediaeval studies: vastly popular in its time, it offers a key to the mindset of readers from 13th century English monks to early Renaissance writers and thinkers. Like the earlier work of Isidore, from which it is descended, the 19 books of Anglicus' encyclopedia have been likened to a proto-modern 'database' of knowledge. As Trevisa's preface explains, the work is founded on the basis of etymologies - the idea that the knowledge of the origins of a word can disclose the word's 'true sense'. In cataloguing and describing his own medieval world, Anglicus divided his work into 19 books, ranging from physiology (books IV & V) to domestic manners (VI), to astronomy (VIII), natural history (XII & XIII), and geography (XV). Thorndike is especially impressed with Anglic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Xerez, Francisco de:
[Colophon: Vinegia (i.e. Venice): Stampato per Stephano da Sabio, 1535].. [62] leaves. Small quarto. 19th-century pebbled pigskin, spine gilt. Boards and extremities lightly rubbed. Some minor soiling, a few leaves lightly toned. Two small tears, on titlepage and second leaf, neatly repaired. Very good. As one of the "Men of Cajamarca," Francisco de Xerez holds a very special place among writers on the earliest period of Spanish contact with the Inca of Peru: He was there from day one, a member of the very small band of men who left Panama with Pizarro and Almagro to seek fame and fortune in South America. At Cajamarca he participated in the taking of the Inca leader, Atahualpa, the slaughter of his army, and the sharing of the ransom demanded of the Inca nation for the return of their leader. By training a notary public and practiced writer, he was by choice Pizarro's secretary/confidant, the two having been close since at least 1524, when they met in Panama; and when in 1534 he returned to Spain, he took with him his share of the wealth of Atahualpa, a broken leg, and a tale to tell that was significant, stirring, and in fact tellable by no other man. He conceived of his book as being at once a socially and politically useful celebration of Pizarro's deeds and his own, a celebration of the glory of Spain as that was expressing itself in a remote and wondrous New World, and as a true entertainment cast in the tradition of the romance of chivalry; not surprisingly, it was a blockbuster. Xerez's eyewitness account of the conquest of Peru was originally published … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pregiata edizione delle vite dei filosofi di Diogene Laerzio. Non ci ? pervenuta alcuna notizia sulla sua vita; il nome Laerzio potrebbe derivare dalla citt? di Laerte, in Cilicia, l'odierna Alanya in Turchia; altri, rifacendosi alla sua biografia ne deducono che egli fosse originario di Nicea; altri ancora, infine, attraverso deduzioni di carattere culturale, pur non pronunciandosi sulla sua origine, ritengono che egli sia prevalentemente vissuto ad Alessandria. Lo si colloca normalmente tra la fine del II secolo e la prima met? del III, e ci? lo si deduce dalla sua conoscenza di Sesto Empirico, vissuto nella seconda met? del II secolo d. C., e dalla citazione del filosofo Potamone di Alessandria come vissuto, dice Diogene "poco tempo fa", e operante nei primi anni del III secolo. Diogene non dichiara esplicitamente la sua appartenenza a una determinata scuola filosofica, e tuttavia, dai giudizi espressi in alcune biografie, traspare un'ostilit? verso forme di pensiero superstizioso, la sua simpatia" nei confronti di Epicuro e la sua … [Click Below for Full Description]

C. PTOLEMY / L. FRIES
3 woodcut maps, 29,5x45,5cm, 32x48cm and 29x46cm Lyon 1535 The majority of the maps published by Laurenz Fries for his editions of Ptolemy's "Geographia" were reduced copies of Waldseemüller's corresponding maps from 1513. However the second map in the set, one of two "modern" maps of the world, is partly Fries' own construction but based on Waldseemüller's so-called "The Admiral's Map". Therefore the map must be regarded as a sea chart. This definition is supported by the decorations along the edges. On the third map, the second "modern" one, Fries added five thrones of kings, representing those of Russia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Taprobana (Ceylon), and Mursuli. Above Greenland he put in an image of a mammoth. The three maps represent some of the earliest world maps available to a collector. The set of three was published by Michael Servetus. He was some years later burnt at the stake. On Calvin's order many copies of Servetus's books followed him into the flames. It is supposed that this also included the 1535 atlas edition which made it to a rare book.. The Ptolemy map has a water stain along upper margin. R.

Petrus Gyllius (1490-1555) was a French naturalist who travelled the Mediteranean and the Orient and reported on the natural world. He was also a translator, and this appears to represent a translation of a work by Claudius Aelianus (175AD-235AD). It has some very early descriptions of animals, including elphants. However, there are no illustrations. ÂÂThis is a somewhat rare work that appears to have surfaced only once or twice at auction in the past 25 years.

XEREZ, Francisco de:
[Colophon: Vinegia (i.e. Venice): Stampato per Stephano da Sabio, 1535]. [62] leaves. Small quarto. 19th-century pebbled pigskin, spine gilt. Boards and extremities lightly rubbed. Some minor soiling, a few leaves lightly toned. Two small tears, on titlepage and second leaf, neatly repaired. Very good. Men of Cajamarca: two eyewitness accounts of events As one of the "Men of Cajamarca," Francisco de Xerez holds a very special place among writers on the earliest period of Spanish contact with the Inca of Peru: He was there from day one, a member of the very small band of men who left Panama with Pizarro and Almagro to seek fame and fortune in South America. At Cajamarca he participated in the taking of the Inca leader, Atahualpa, the slaughter of his army, and the sharing of the ransom demanded of the Inca nation for the return of their leader. By training a notary public and practiced writer, he was by choice Pizarro's secretary/confidant, the two having been close since at least 1524, when they met in Panama; and when in 1534 he returned to Spain, he took with him his share of the wealth of Atahualpa, a broken leg, and a tale to tell that was significant, stirring, and in fact tellable by no other man. He conceived of his book as being at once a socially and politically useful celebration of Pizarro's deeds and his own, a celebration of the glory of Spain as that was expressing itself in a remote and wondrous New World, and as a true entertainment cast in the tradition of the romance of chivalry; not surprisingly, it was a blockbuster. Xerez's eyewitness accoun … [Click Below for Full Description]
